I love my job role, I love my coworkers, I love my manager, I love the doctors I work under, and I love my patients. (Sometimes I even love the hospital system I work for. 🙂 ) I've walked into many infectious fires both at home and abroad as an RN over a long career. This bug is different, though. This one has me nervous. I've decided I will stay on as long as I am allowed to utilise my own PPE in the absence of hospital-provided PPE (which I have purchased with much research into standards of application). If I run out of my own supplies, or the hospital runs out, or I am disallowed by administrative entities to use either...then it's time for me to go. I am not young, and I have a very high-risk adult living with me. I would like to see hospital administration nationwide do an about-face and work with us in transparency. This is not a time to "save face." These are extraordinary times, and it will take extraordinary cooperation, information sharing, and trust between us all.
